The Finnish Olympic Committee (FOC) and WithSecure (formerly known as F-Secure Business) have announced a partnership that aims to bring outcome-based security to Finland’s sports community.

The partnership enables the FOC and WithSecure to work together to create a safer, more equitable environment for sports and athletics in Finland. It includes technical and administrative tracks to assess the FOC’s current cybersecurity infrastructure and establish guidance to support the Finnish sports community’s cyber-resilience in the future. 

“Success in security and sports requires prioritising risks according to how they jeopardise goals,” said Juhani Hintikka, CEO, WithSecure. “That makes outcome-based security essential to the success of the FOC and I’m pleased with the opportunity to lend our security expertise to help Finland’s sports community.”

Cybersecurity is becoming increasingly important to the FOC as it increases the use of data in its operations. The FOC, whose main responsibilities include developing services that support Finland’s sports community, needs to improve the cyber-resilience of its digital services without diverting resources from other operations.

“The Finnish Olympic Committee has invested heavily in the development of digital services for the Finnish sports community,” added Taina Susiluoto, CEO, FOC. “The biggest project is Suomisport, which already reaches more than 750,000 people and combines all sports services in one place. With so many people relying on us, we need to ensure that our services are safe for them to use now and in the future.”
